Description Jon Benson 2000-11-14 05:57:30 UTC
repquota is truncating usernames which makes it rather difficult to use.
It's a case of the good old 8 character limit coming in to play.

winmybiz-t+-   15621   15360   20480     34       1     0     0

That user is winmybiz-tony but with repquota reporting it like this you
wouldn't know it wasn't winmybiz-tim  :(

My main problem is I have a Perl script designed to warn me of users
overquota.  I did have it emailing them as well but until I realised it was
trying to send email to the wrong accounts.

I'd assume this is a rather simple source code hack.  Even if a "-w"
argument were added to get a wider output.

I'd even be happier with a UID that I could then map back to a username.

The version of quota in rawhide supports 15 char usernames.
